So it can be assumed that we will have to deal with multiple universes and / or time travel in The Flash. This would by no means be new territory for the superhero. Already in Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League, Barry Allen, the real name of the hero, reversed the flow of time. He was also seen at the end of the film in a parallel universe in which Batman and the Joker team up against an evil Superman.

It seems like the Flash movie will at least partially build on the established continuity of the DC movie universe, but it was announced in advance that the story will steer the franchise in a completely new direction.

An adaptation of the New Gods comic books by filmmaker Ava DuVernay and author Tom King was canceled, as was the Aquaman spin-off The Trench by producer James Wan.

The CW dropped a trailer shortly after episode seven aired, in it, a news reporter can be heard saying: “Later today Killer Frost will be sentenced at the Central City Court House.”

Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet) is then seen defending Killer Frost during the hearing.

She says: “Frost only wishes to serve alongside our greatest protector The Flash.

'The verdict of the case will determine whether or not Killer Frost will lose her powers, with the prosecutor saying: Your honour, she must have her powers erased.”

The trailer finishes with the line: “In the end justice always wins.”

The Flash season seven will have 18 episodes, returning with episode eight.

The CW has confirmed that The Flash will continue with an eighth season, but there has been no confirmation of a release date.
